We were blessed to work with "Mac" at both Fulton County and Rich's. He was a dear friend and confidant. Mac always put others first and truly lived Micah 6:8. He acted justly, loved faithfully and kindly, humbly walked with God. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family now and in the days to come. We thank God for allowing our life's journey to cross paths with Mac.
